The Temple of the Reclining Buddha also took 21st spot in the TripAdvisor Top 25 Landmarks in the World 2017.

Mr. Yuthasak Supasorn, Governor of the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) said, "Some of Thailand's greatest treasures can be found in the historic heart of Bangkok, and we're delighted that so many tourists come here to delight in the artistic, cultural and religious heritage of the kingdom. Thailand offers a huge array of historic sites including temples and cities, and we invite everyone to explore and discover the amazing art and craftsmanship of Thai builders and artists from times past."

The annual TripAdvisor Travelers' Choice Awards, are given based on the quantity and quality of travellers' reviews and ratings on TripAdvisor's website gathered over the previous 12-month period.
